It feels like it's been ages since we've had new music from MS MR, but they're making their return in 2015. They've just revealed details of their highly anticipated new record How Does It Feel, and if lead single 'Painted' is any indication, it feels pretty damn good. That album drops on 17 July via RCA Records, and you can watch their brand new Tabitha Denholm-directed video for 'Painted' below! The 12-track effort features collaborations with Tove Lo on 'Pieces' and MNDR for LP cut 'Tripolar', and was recorded in both New York City and LA. In a press release, the band explained the premise behind the futuristic 'Painted' clip:

"We were heavily inspired by Kubrick as well as the 1970s documentary ‘The Secret Life of Plants.’ Focusing on the lyric: what did you think would happen/when you put me in unnatural space, we wanted to explore the juxtaposition of natural and unnatural environments and what happens when they're forced to reckon with one another. The end result is a virtual reality psychedelic experiment gone awry—welcome to the odyssey.”
